After 16 years in the pros, first with the New York Liberty, then the San Antonio Stars, Hammon's bona fides are well established. "She impressed me," Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. "Because of her size. She wasn't the fastest. You could tell she could find a way to become important. Even if she wasn't shooting great one day, but she was smart, one step ahead. The type of player that usually becomes coaches." Bleacher Report

Veteran guard Manu Ginobili, the Spurs' most active user of social media, has his own rules about posting on sites such as Instagram and Twitter. “It's a very sensitive topic because it's dangerous,” Ginobili said. “You have a phone, and you go through different moods, and different things can happen. I probably tweet one out of 10, I think. If I am in doubt that it's not going to be funny, or who cares, boom, I'm out. “Sometimes you are tempted, and you're bored in your room, and you want to do something, and things happen. You have to be very sensitive, very cautious because a lot of people follow us. Even if they don't, with retweets, everyone ends up knowing. “When you are a sort of (a) public figure, you can get into trouble easily. So before writing anything, it's a smart thing to do to just show somebody else.” San Antonio Express-News

Manu Ginobili is unable to participate in the FIBA World Cup, which begins tomorrow in Spain. But he had a decent consolation prize to enjoy with a state dedicated in his honor in Buenos Aires. No details are immediately available, but Ginobili posted a picture via his ever-active Twitter account on Friday morning. San Antonio Express-News

That generated questions about whether the relationship, so strong since his arrival in 2002, had been strained, if not damaged. But Ginobili put them to rest in his recent interview with La Cancha, as translated by Pounding the Rock’s J.J. Gomez. As much as he held out hope for one last swan song with the Argentine national team, Ginobili said he knew playing at the World Cup was out of the question after he experienced pain in his injured leg even after a month of rest and mild rehab. If it had gotten to that point (mediation), it might have (hurt my relationship with the Spurs) because I would have been basically disobeying orders. But I was willing to do it if I felt well and in a condition to play. But when the moment came to start playing and doing impact workouts, the pain was still there. I know myself, this is the third time this has happened to me. I know that when the pain starts, it doesn’t stop; taking a day off wasn’t going to solve it. The bone has to heal and it hadn’t or something else was wrong. During the first training session in which I felt pain, I knew there was no way I could play. San Antonio Express-News
